I’m back from my stay-cation. Back to reality! (Boo – Hiss!) Although my stay-cation actually had a lot of reality mixed in with it. Almost every day there was some interruption that required my attention. Either I had to take care of some “emergency” for DH or I had to babysit a DGC or someone in the family tracked me down and wanted to visit. How come in real life they hardly ever have time to visit, but when I am trying to get away from it all, they show up!?! I mean, it’s wonderful to have them visit, but they do choose less than convenient moments sometimes!!

I did manage to get in a good bit of sewing, (pictures to follow in a future post) which was the main reason for my little adventure. A close second (and probably first in his opinion) was spending quiet time with DH. With no phones ringing and no television, we were able to enjoy the peace and quiet every evening – very nice!!

We ended the stay-cation with a picnic on Sunday. My quilt group – the Heritage Quilters – found their way to the “ends of the earth” at our cabin and we had a wonderful time visiting, hiking, eating and talking quilts!!

Bev and Barb managed to visit for the day. I wasn’t sure what they were going to be able to do, because they had a long day on Saturday. It wasn’t until they showed up that I knew they were not too worn out from their work the day before. We managed to fit in a little sewing time before everyone else showed up for the picnic.

Well, I’ve been postponing it for a few hours now, but I really need to tackle the HUGE stack of mail that built up while I was away. And I need to put everything that I had taken up to the cabin back in the studio where it belongs. Plus, of course, all the regular stuff that needs done – filing, paying bills, cleaning house, etc!!
